Enhance your growing experience with this superior wetting agent and soil conditioner. Help your plants become more resistant to environmental stresses while improving the quality of your soil. This pure organic extract contains high concentrations of steroidal saponins. These special compounds enhance a plant’s ability to absorb water and nutrients and thrive in harsh conditions. Desert Nectar Yucca Extract will help water and nutrients penetrate compact soils with it’s ability to make water “wetter”. This same quality assists sprays in sticking to foliage. Use Desert Nectar to break up accumulated salts in the soil or irrigation lines and flush them out. Stimulate microbial activity in the soil and give compost teas a kick with the natural sugars from the Yucca schidigera plant. Derived from: 97% Yucca schidigera, 2% citric acid, 1% humic acid
Desert Nectar Yucca Extract
This special evergreen tree is native to the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts, and is unique in that it requires no water in the Summer due largely to the fact that it naturally has a high content of steroidal saponins. These compounds increase the plant’s ability to use water and nutrients more efficiently, requiring less frequent feeding and irrigating.
This Yucca schidigera is cold-pressed to preserve the saponins so they may provide many benefits to the garden. As a natural surfactant, saponins break the surface tension of water making it “wetter,” Spray applications are more easily absorbed through the foliage when using Desert Nectar because this effect allows the spray to stick better, and these saponins also increase the permeability of plant cell membranes, allowing for easier passage of water and nutrients.
The surfactants in Desert Nectar allow for more even water penetration through all growing mediums, even the most compact and alkaline. Saponins release excess salts that have built up in the soil, helping to improve drainage while balancing the soil pH. Plants build resiliency to pests and disease as beneficial microbial activity is stimulated by the saponins and natural sugars contained in Desert Nectar. Elevate your garden with Desert Nectar and experience the benefits of this truly superior wetting agent!
